ONE WHITE ANCESTOR WAS A SLAVE-OWNER.
MAYBE THAT EXPLAINS WHY HE FAVORS REPARATIONS:
"I think the reparation we need right here in South Carolina is investment, for example in our schools. I did a town hall meeting in Florence, South Carolina, in an area called the corridor of shame. They've got buildings that students are trying to learn in that were built right after the Civil War. And we've got teachers who are not trained to teach the subjects they're teaching and high dropout rates. We've got to understand that there are corridors of shame all across the country. And if we make the investments and understand that those are our children, that's the kind of reparation that are really going to make a difference in America right now."OBAMA USED THE TERM REPARATION TWICE.
- HE DID NOT SAY, "LET'S STUDY IT."
- HE SAID REPARATIONS.
- I'M A FOURTH GENERATION AMERICAN WHO FORBEARS HAD ZIPPO TO DO WITH SLAVERY.
- THEY THEMSELVES CAME HERE TO ESCAPE PERSECUTION.
- FOR THE GOVERNMENT TO TAKE AWAY MY HARD-EARNED MONEY TO GIVE OT TO FOLKS ALMOST AS REMOVED FROM SLAVERY AS ME IS SOCIALIST THIEVERY!
- IF THE USA GOV'T AND TODAY'S USA CITIZENRY OWES BLACKS REPARATIONS THAN EGYPT AND PERSIA SHOULD BELONG TO JEWS!
- IMHO: THE BLOOD SPILLED BY THE UNION MORE THAN MAKES UP FOR THE HORRORS OF SLAVERY.
